We expect a cyclic acetal because this reaction uses ethylene glycol.
There are two carbonyl groups in our starting compound.
There are two groups, one is a ketone and the other is an ester group.
We've seen that only ketones are converted into acetals.
The periodic table has sulfur below oxygen.
The chemistry of sulfur-based compounds is very similar to that of oxygen-based compounds.
The transformation of thioacetals will not be observed for acetals.
Raney nickel has hydrogen atoms that are adsorbed to it.
The reduction process is beyond the scope of this course.
This is a synthetic transformation.
Even if you don't know the mechanism, it's worth remembering.
One way to achieve this kind of transformation has already been seen.
In the upcoming section, we will see one more way to achieve this transformation.
Each method has a different set of conditions.
The reduction uses acidic conditions.
The method of desulfurization with Raney nickel uses catalytic acid.
When it isn't good to subject an entire compound to basic conditions, we will see other times.
Predict the major product that is expected when each of the following compounds is treated with HSCH CH SH.
